Snowshoeing in Raundalen with Wild Voss
Raundalen is a secluded valley featuring wild and unspoiled mountain nature. The beautiful Raundalen River winds its way through narrow gorges and forested marshlands. Snowy mountains with steep hillsides frame the valley on both sides. Deer, elks and other wild animals can be spotted if we are lucky. The railway line between Bergen and Oslo runs through this valley, allowing for practical and emission-free access.
During a typical day out, your guide will make sure you learn basic skills for safe travel in winter, introduce you to both nature and local culture and make sure you feel comfortable at all times.
At our lunch spot for the day, we build a bonfire together and enjoy something hot to drink and a bite to eat. Here’s an opportunity for you to learn what it takes to make a bonfire of your own. We use the heat of the flames to prepare our meal. If the weather is bad, we’ll join forces and build an improvised shelter to keep us dry and out of the wind. You'll find that the time spent near the bonfire provides a good opportunity for contemplation and leaving the civilized world behind for a few moments.
This is a non-technical and family-friendly excursion. This trip is suitable for healthy people who would like to spend some time in peaceful, unspoiled nature. This trip takes you through woodland terrain, which means we are normally sheltered from strong winds and inclement weather. No prior hiking or skiing experience is required.
